Even though it’s snowing outside right now (I’m not even kidding. That’s New England weather for ya!) it is actually spring, so I’ve rounded up some super cute farmhouse style aqua decor pieces for you!

Every Spring, I get a burst of energy and optimism about home improvement. I’m going to fix this, paint that, finally replace this, and on and on. We’ve been living in this house for five years. In that time, I’ve planned out so many home improvement renovations, DIYs, and updates in my head, but haven’t actually completed very many in real life.

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing a new set of farmhouse wreath printables I made over our February vacation.

 

There are four sayings, ‘be grateful’, ‘live simply’, ‘choose happy’, and ‘bless this home’ each in a simple farmhouse wreath. I kept them black and white so they could go with any decor, or you could use a colored or wood frame. Any of them would be a nice addition to a gallery wall.

Yay for February Vacation! My husband and I are both teachers, so we’re off from work for the next week. I’m breathing a sigh of relief because, man did I need this break. Between teaching, caring for my children, and taking care of my home, I. Am. Exhausted.

Can you relate?

Being a teacher, wife, and mama is hard. It’s tiring. There’s always so much to do, and never enough time to do it in.

Happy Valentine’s Day friends!

My mother in law gave me an Amazon gift card for my birthday last month, and I’ve been browsing for a bit thinking about what I’m going to buy with it.
